The perfectly ripened grapes combine with crisp, citrus acidity, to give the wine a lovely balance. Fresh and floral with touches of honey.
Vineyard info / Viticulture:
Vineyards are located in Belice Agrigento – mid-way across Sicily on the southern coast. The grapes are picked by hand in mid September and are carefully selected.
The grapes are destemmed, soft pressed using a pneumatic press, then left in contact with the skins for about 12 hours at 10° C for optimum extraction of the aromas. Fermentation takes place at about 14-16°C. They do not do malolactic fermentation in order to retain all the natural acidity of the wine. They then leave the wine on its fine lees at a constant temperature of 16°C until the end of January. Prior to bottling at the end of February/beginning of March, they do a very gentle filtration.
Perfect chilled as an aperitif and wonderful with a plate of seafood.
